2017’s social media landscape in one stunning infographic


Social media, once the name we gave for a platform like Facebook, has become quite difficult to define. Even Facebook and Twitter don’t typically refer to themselves as social networks — at least not exclusively that. 

A newly released infographic might just help us grasp the social media landscape: “The Conservation Prism 5.0.” 

Brian Solis, an author and digital analyst at Altimeter Group, first launched the aptly-named “Conversation Prism” back in 2008. His project — designed with creative agency JESS3 — covered the streets of Austin, Texas during South by Southwest that year and continues to be a popular reference among marketers.  Read more…

You know that Jayden K. Smith Facebook hack? It’s actually a hoax that doesn’t make any damn sense


Here’s a story you’ve probably heard before: A viral hoax is spreading on Facebook, that, when you stop and think about it, really doesn’t make any damn sense

Monday’s hoax involves a supposed hacker named Jayden K. Smith. 

As far as the hoax goes, users are warned about an incoming friend request from a user named “Jayden K. Smith,” who is reportedly a hacker. Then the user is encouraged to share the warning with all of their friends to protect one’s Facebook network from Jayden.

The warning looks a little something like this: Read more…

The alt-right’s high school drama reveals a bigger struggle


We’re still a hair over three weeks from the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump and the controversial alt-right movement that helped lift him to power is experiencing high school level infighting.

Like a Degrassi High storyline, the alt-right is up in arms about who gets to hang out with the cool kids. Specifically, over who gets invited to the DeploraBall, a big to-do playing off Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment, which is scheduled for Jan. 19, 2017 to coincide with Trump’s inauguration (although it’s not an officially sanctioned inauguration event).  Read more…

This pilot wants to wish you a Happy New Year


Well here’s a creative New Year’s message.

Flightradar24 — a service that allows users to track flight patterns all around the world — tweeted  the greeting. 

This pilot in UK is wishing everyone a Happy New Year! 🎆🎆🎆

He had a pro-Hillary meltdown on live TV. Then the conspiracy theories started.


John Grkovic is a passionate guy. We saw that in a CNN man-on-the-street interview the day after the election during a protest in Chicago.

His fervor shone through the dark Chicago streets, as did his ardent Hillary Clinton support and frustration with the electoral college system in a two-minute clip that aired live.

Soon after his appearance on CNN, his TV moment took a turn. Grkovic’s full name and phone number got out and he was bombarded with calls and emails from people who believe he is a CNN cameraman who was paid to look like a protester. Dubious news outlets picked up on this line of thinking and wrote online stories about him posing as a protester. The story started to spread. Read more…

Russian Embassy just responded to U.S. sanctions with a meme. Really.


After President Barack Obama announced sanctions against Russia Thursday in retaliation for tampering with the U.S. presidential election, the Russian Embassy in London shot back.

In a tweet Thursday afternoon, the embassy’s UK Twitter account (which is verified as the official account) posted a photo of a duckling with the word “Lame” over it, in a blatant reference to Obama as he nears the end of his “lame duck” period in office after almost eight years as president.

President Obama expels 35 🇷🇺 diplomats in Cold War deja vu. As everybody, incl 🇺🇸 people, will be glad to see the last of this hapless
